In Love With This Blog
"Numbers never lie."
The average employment report over the last decade has some pretty low lyin' numbers in it.
My bad. I seem to be using the wrong definition of lie, lol. Sigh.
In all seriousness, that's a good start to any mission statement.
And I do get quite a kick out of the Assistant Village Idiot's blog. Kind of him to point to me.
Anything I can do to keep the love coming, let me know...obviously since I just started I'm always looking for topics!
I mostly crunch numbers in an attempt to avoid working on stupid stuff. Once in a while, if I can attach BIG dollar amounts to my "work" estimates I can get management to actually talk to their workers instead of actively avoid talking to their people.
I wind up not getting an expensive project, but I feel satisfied not having spent any more time on a project that doesn't need doing. But 98% of people are motivated by a combination of greed, ego, an fear. If you took all the unnecessary work out of the economy, the unemployment rate would probably be over 50%. Idle hands are the devil's workshop, so maybe unnecessary work isn't all bad.
